Prevent your drives from damaging

If you have to turn your computer off and back on immediately, wait for some time, say about 30 seconds before turning it back on. That gives the drive (or drives, if you have more than one) plenty of time to finish spinning and park their heads before they get the wake-up jolt. Otherwise the heads could damage the drive surface. This may lead to loss of data or replacement of your drive(s).
